SQL Reporting Services

SQL Server Reporting Services Classes

Learn to use SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) to create, format, and manage reports.

Virtual Classes: Our SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) classes are now available online with an instructor present for the entire course. You will see the instructor's screen throughout the class and you can share your screen if you need individual help from the instructor. You will have time to practice, ask questions, and receive hands-on training. During class, you will be able to access our SQL Server in order to learn SQL.

In-person classes are also available at our West County facility with limited enrollments to promote social distancing. When you register, choose your class section based on how you want to attend the class: virtual or in-person.

  • Choose "West County In-Person" if you want to attend a class at our West County location.
  • Select "Live Online" if you want to attend virtually from your workplace or home.

Introduction to SQL Server Reporting Services

(Prerequisite: Introduction to SQL or equivalent experience.) Learn to create professional-quality reports from SQL Server and other ODBC-compliant databases. Discover how to create both standard and ad-hoc reports and deliver them via print, Web, e-mail, and PDF files. Create an environment where users can design their own reports with limited database knowledge. Learn to build and format reports with headers, footers, titles, totals, and calculations. The reports you create can contain tables, charts (or both), and can drill-down to other reports for greater detail. [Course Outline]
